Aubigny-la-Ronce (French pronunciation: ​[obiɲi la ʁɔ̃s]) is a commune in the Côte-d’Or department in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region of eastern France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Aubignotins or Aubignotines.[3]

Geography[edit]

Aubigny-la-Ronce is located some 18 km south-west of Beaune and some 20 km east by north-east of Autun. The western border of the commune is the border between the departments of Côte-d’Or and Saône-et-Loire. Access to the commune is by the D33 road from Molinot in the north passing south down the eastern side of the commune and continuing to Nolay in the south. Access to the village is by the D33D road which branches west off the D33 in the commune, passes through the village, and continues west. Apart from the village there are the hamlets of Lavault in the north-west and La Chassagne in the south-west. Almost half of the commune is forested in the north-west with the rest farmland.[4]

The Petit Drée flows from the north forming much of the north-western border and continuing south-west to join the Drée at Epinac. The Ruisseau de Roncevaux rises in the east of the commune and flows north-west forming part of the northern border before joining the Petit Drée on the commune border.[4]

History[edit]

In 1208 Robert, chaplain of Aubigny-la-Ronce, gave one fifth of the tithe of Aubigny to the Abbey of Saint-Martin of Autun to be used for alms. Gautier II, Bishop of Autun, ratified the act in August 1208. In 1260 Hugues, Lord of Aubigny, gave land. His son and his mother also made new donations to be used for charity in 1263. Jean de Volnay, Equerry, also gave a fief in 1262. In the same year the lord of Aubigny paid homage for a fief that he held for the Abbey of Saint-Martin d’Autun in Aubigny.[5]
